Quality Matters (QM) at Framingham State University is an initiative, sponsored by CELTSS and the Offices of Graduate Studies and Continuing Education, to provide faculty support to re-design online and blended courses according to QM national standards. These standards promote learning and engagement through a student focused, faculty managed, continuous quality improvement process.
